NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation recently graduated its first class of Criminal Justice Academy students.

More than 100 college students from across the state applied for the academy, and 21 students representing 20 different colleges in Tennessee attended the week-long training.

According to the TBI, the academy was developed for college juniors and seniors who are interested in a career in criminal justice or forensic science. The course was held at the Tennessee Fire Service and Codes Enforcement Academy in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.

Students spent part of the time in classes learning about ethics, investigative skills and interrogation.

TBI special agents also instructed them on how to use crime scene equipment and tactics used in investigating crime scenes.
